wanna REALLY hear something scary for Halloween?

Track down the band's insanely embarrassing, never-should-have-touched-human-ears rendition of "Blackbird." (I think it's from some godforsaken 1988 show).

Paul McCartney spins in his grave every time it gets played and he's not even dead.

I wrote David Gans (as Anonymous) regarding this "godforsaken" show (6-23-88) and the Blackbird back in 2009 - http://staging.dead.net/features/grateful-dead-hour-no-555. Nope, not the Rotterdam Dark Star by any means, but I'll treasure the magic and memories from that night until the day I die.

As to the true subject matter of the thread - I love Bobby Weir, but I've thought his tonsil-shredding screeches at the end of early NFA's and Lovelights were close to intolerable, much harder to deal with than Donna's kick-in-the-ass yelp's.

And in a slightly relevant shifting of the topic I suggest the SirMick matrix of 5-15-77, where Bobby and Donna (and the rest of the band) are in complete and absolutely perfect synch during the screaming Sugar Magnolia Set II closer (my favorite Sugar Mag). http://www.archive.org/details/gd1977-05-15.mtx.sirmick.91911.sbeok.flac16 For May 77 fans, the matrix, and not the board, of this under-the-May77 radar show, is where its at. Brilliant show and the closing sequence is crazy.

It's all about the energy.
